Thank God somebody talked sense into Obama. The following was just released by the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he has decided that the United States should take military action against Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack.
But he says he will seek congressional authorization for the use of force.
He says congressional leadership plans to hold a debate and a vote as soon as Congress comes back in September.
Obama says he has the authority to act on his own, but believes it is important for the country to have a debate.Military action would be in response to a chemical weapons attack the U.S. says Syrian President Bashar Assad's government carried out against civilians. The U.S. says more than 1,400 Syrians were killed in that attack last week.
This solution is a simple and efficient way for an egotist like Obama to save face. Though he still looks like a complete ass and warmonger, this decision allows his ego not to be harmed. It's sad to say that is the truth. It was never about teaching Syria a lesson, removing some presumed weapons of mass destruction, keeping us out of an other war in the Middle East or possible starting an international crisis across the globe. It was all about obama and his narcissistic ego. It's a pitiful situation when the fate of possibly the entire world rests upon obama's self-centered shoulders.
When you think out it, isn't ironic how the tides have turned. Now, Obama and the democrats are calling for war based upon suspect evidence when a few years ago they were crucifying President Bush for the same thing. Hyporacy runs wild.
